Does the oil inspection light mean, I only need a oil change??
If/when it needs either inspection I or II, will the Indicator say it??
Or will it just say oil inspection, like its doing now.
Never had the indicator get to the RED.
Thanks in advance.
You need an oil change and filter change. When the Inspection light comes on, it won't say I or II. Just Inspection.
When it says Oil Change, it means just that.
When the red light comes on, it just means you have gone past the recommended interval.
Work should be done when the orange light is on. It probably won't turn to red for at least 1,500 miles.
